Let’s face it. Motherhood is tough. Oftentimes I feel weak and worn out; mentally and physically. I’m sure other moms and dads feel the same way. I frequently turn to the Lord in prayer. I pray for patience, strength and guidance.
Today, I came across 7 Quick Prayers of Encouragement published by iMoms. These are great prayers and remember, “when life gets too hard to stand kneel.”
7 Quick Prayers of Encouragement
I don’t know where time has gone. My baby Tallen wasn’t even 1! In August he’ll be 5!
Easter has totally crept up on me! Yesterday, I was scurrying around preparing for Tallen and Trace’s Easter egg hunt at daycare. I had the challenge of filling their eggs with “non-candy” items. I have to admit, I was a little stumped, but welcomed the idea. (We still have a lingering bowl of Valentine’s Day candy.) After a few ideas, I opted for spring themed stickers.
If I wasn’t such a procrastinator, I may have used some of these other items for my “egg-fillers.” Check them out!

Compositionally Challenged Most Versatile – Shiny Things
Sharing life with a 15-month old is about rediscovering the simple things.
What we see: blowing bubbles in a back yard that was recently torn up for foundation work, has a massive hole you can sprain your ankle on and a dead mouse.
What she sees: bubbles!!!

I absolutely love the color green! Green cardigans, green peacoats, green tanks. You name it, I have it. St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. While I won’t be partying it up on the streets of Pittsburgh, I will be wearing green – not that I ever need an excuse!
Below are some of my favorite fashion picks.
Ballet Flats: Pair these bright colored flats with jeggings or skinny jeans.
Necklace: Accessorize a classic white collar shirt with a bright, bold necklace.
Shirt Dress: Shirt dresses never go out of style. Pick one up in army green and pair it with ankle boots.
A-Line Skirt: A-Line skirts are very figure flattering. Style with a classic black pump.
